LibriVox recording of Human Nature and Conduct: An Introduction to Social Psychology (1922) - Part 3 by John Dewey. Read in English by William Allan Jones John Dewey, an early 20th Century American philosopher, psychologist, educational theorist saw Social Psychology as much a physical science (with rules and predictive power) as Biology and Chemistry. This project encompasses Part 3 of 4 of his book Human Nature and Conduct. Part 3: THE PLACE OF INTELLIGENCE IN CONDUCT Dewey's uses the words "HABIT" and "Impulse" as a specialized catch-all words to describe how a person and his/her objective environment interact. This interaction is the basis for moral and ethical judgements. Dewey writes: "All habits are demands for certain kinds of activity; and they constitute the self.” In other places he also asserts that "Habits are Will." ~ Summary by William Jones, Soloist - Summary by ~ William Jones For further information, including links to online text, reader information, RSS feeds, CD cover or other formats (if available), please go to the LibriVox catalog page for this recording.
